Nursery Ideas

Friday again, and time to post some of my thoughts for nursery ideas. I think today will be more about decoration ideas. I have been scouring the internet for fun baby toys, decorations, and other cute things. Again thoughts would be most useful and encouraging.

Brandon's mom was given a child's armoire when she was first pregnant and offered it to us. Our idea is for us to be able to custom choose the finish of our furniture. He is going to refinish the armoire, our rocking chair (below) is unfinished, and the crib should be the only other big piece of furniture that we have in the nursery. We are really excited about all of our furniture. it, and then the thought came as I was thinking about the dresser - why not find Disney dresser pulls? so of course I searched and these are the ones
that I found, and they could look really cute.

Rocking chair. Ok This is not an idea but rather a must. Being the old fashioned me that I am, I have looked high and low for a rocking chair, old wooden chair that I can enjoy with my beautiful little boy. In Fresno there is a cute little unfinished wood store called, "Beautiwood" and when we went in, I fell in love, not only with this rocking chair bu
t also a high chair that matches. So precious.

I have been looking for some type of growth chart- either something I can make or get, again Disney theme- any thoughts? This is the only cute one that I found online at Babies 'r' Us. But I think custom is always better than store bought.

So this next item I am really excited about and cannot wait to decide if we actually get this or if this will be one of those "wishful" additions to the nursery.

Isn't he amazing? 48" Mickey Mouse. He is huge! I love him. We went walking in Costco- one of our date trips and I saw him, and fell in love. Who wouldn't? And with Costco's prices how could we beat it? ($54 if anyone was wondering- a bit expensive). Anyway- so cute and adorable, he will probably have to stay at Costco- I don't even know if our little room would be able to handle him. Speaking of stuffed animals, there are a bit more reasonable and equally adorable...

These are patterns for your own stuffed animals, and how could you not get any simpler than this? Cut along the lines, sew, stuff, and voila your own cute stuffed animals! Fyi these are much more reasonably priced.

Lastly, I found this adorable piggy bank- Hamm from Toy Story! How classic- it suprisingly is one of the few items that I found at the Disney Store. Can't you just imagine Hamm sitting by a window on a shelf? So cute.
This may have to do for today- next week though look for my baby quilt ideas. Hopefully I will be able to start piecing everything together. We move into our house November 1st! So definitely look for more concrete ideas by then, otherwise I will post updates on blankets, quilts, and the additions to the nursery that we acquire. I am so excited!
